Now I understand how data mining, API's and dumping and retrieving data from a database works. Excellent course to start understanding how python can be used to work with data sources on the internet.
I found this course a little bit easier that some of the previous courses, however, it allowed me to gain experience managing a larger projects that encompass several languages and multiple programs.

There are Pros and Cons with the approach Dr. Chuck took, pros are it gives you up and running to get you going for your own personal data mining projects, but the cons are that assignments are too easy to pass.

Was looking for more examples and projects....Students should have got more hands on. Code walk through is good but there should be one more project which instructor should have started from scratch till closer

This course has the most comprehensive designed material applying all the other courses recommended in Py4E. Its really good to get an overview of data retrieval, analysis and data interpretation in one-go.

It was a little confusing as to what we were supposed to do with the websites. I know it was an "optional" project, but it looks like I can't even go back and complete it, and it seemed like a fun project.

I enjoyed the course series, the capstone I though should be a program that we design, however, that would be very time consuming and would take personalized instruction and aid. Good class overall.
by David C•
The sample solution and explanations are very good since it gives a complete whole picture of doing a big data analysis project. The assignment is very easy, but good to get the specialization.
by Jeff S•
Really great sample code for working on other projects in the future. Good wrap up to the specialization. I was hoping there was more code editing required to complete the three assignments.

Great course. Nice introduction as a capstone course. Give all the programs a journal students needed. However, don't have the peer review for the self-study project make it's easier to pass.

it was so amazing to learn python and some basis on databases, i have now to learn some R basis, pandas and more for more experience.
thank you Dr CHUCK, will see you on ''history of internet"
by KOKKILIGADDA M•
Its very Important concept while we dealing with Databases. I am feeling happy that learn this retrieving,processing,Visualizing concepts with python environment.
Thanks COURSERA TEAM

Although the language was lucid, the material intuitive. the staff mentors etc were wonderful and quick in response..... ..just wish it had a little more depth..!
thank you all

Interesting capstone, summing up all the knowledge from previous courses on quizzes and lectures. However, I felt a lack of hands-on exercises and more challenging assignments.
by Muhammad J K•
Nice course but the assignments were not challenging because the code was already provided to students. It would have been much challenging if it had required students to code.
by John M R•
Really enjoyed the materials, particularly the code walkthroughs. I thought the assignments were a little basic, but perhaps that's the nature of such a large online course.
by Dushyant V•
I Learn how powerful Python is. This course set my basics and
I love learning here because every course comes with different concept and give you a lot of knowledge.
by Gianmaria M•
Great examples that give incentive to apply the what is covered in real cases. I would have loved to have longer videos on the codes walkthrough. Thanks for the great class
I'm very excited how the visualisation is so easy. Unfortunately, there is not much time to learn in deep. Well, I guess it is not the purpose of this certificate.
by Aditya G•
The course was good but could have been a bit more descriptive in terms of the data visualization and analysis direction. Overall, an awesome course for starters.
by Mohamed M•
Course is great but I'd prefer that the tasks required writing code or editing the given code to complete the task it'll help more, but over all course was great.
by Janne D•
Could have been a little more coding but in the end this course requires more self studying and good thing is that I got good "coding packages" for future use.
by Archishman R•
This course was very well framed and helped me in learning a lot of things too. Thank you Dr. Chuck. Please come to India soon for one of your Office Hours. :)
by Jakob B Ø H•
Could have been more challenging and maybe used the Jupyter notebook I've seen in other courses from Michigan to create a more challenging capstone project.
by Sebastian C•
Compared to the courses 1 to 4 this course is not challenging. I actually hoped for more, but still giving four stars as the course overall was awesome.
by Alexander S•
This is not a course that is giving any new knowledge and all that is required of you is to execute provided software. The examples however are good.
by Shaidullin N I•
I would like to have more lectures, as in the first courses of specialization, where there were much more detailed explanations of the nuances.
